The Fabricator, a monthly print and digital publication that focuses on the metal forming industry, has named BTD Manufacturing No. 2 on its FAB 40 list. This is the sixth year in a row we’ve landed in the top three, which recognizes our company as the second-largest metal fabrication operation in the U.S. It also recognizes our commitment to custom metalwork manufacturing. The Fabricator selects companies based off of their previous year’s reported revenue tied to contract and custom metalwork manufacturing.
“We’ve made some big investments in our company over the years,” said Paul Gintner, BTD Manufacturing president. “These are critical in allowing us to stay aligned with our customers’ needs now and into the future.”
Within the last few years, we’ve added 110,000 square feet of facility space to our operations, which include locations in Detroit Lakes and Lakeville, Minnesota as well as Washington, Illinois and Dawsonville, Georgia. In addition, we’ve invested in a variety of new automation, robotic and production equipment to enhance productivity and grow our capabilities. This includes several 10,000-watt fiber sheet lasers, press brakes and light fabrication equipment.
Since our start more than 40 years ago we’ve expanded our menu of custom metalwork services to include a variety of capabilities, including metal fabrication, stamping, machining, powder coating, robotic welding and tubing. This has ensured our top place among fabricators and clients needing metalwork.
